    Sweet Cover!!!
    I love this movie SO much. Too bad I already have the 'edited' one disc version.

    I refused to buy the current disc since I had heard that they were planning an unrated DVD to be released around the time Saw II hit theaters this fall.

    This is great news. [​IMG]

    I'm keeping my original disc, in addition to this new edition, since it appears not all the extras are carried over, including the original commentary. And of course the theatrical cut.

    I am also a fan of this underrated (pun-intended) thriller of an indy film. Just don't be surprised when they announce the Ultimate 4-disc Box Set next year - and the HD Edition as well.

    BTW: Anyone else enjoying the irony in calling this new edition "Uncut"? [​IMG]

    I heard the cuts add up to a whopping EIGHT seconds?

    I heard that they also changed the audio and the coloring to make it less intense.

    Yeah, they did have to change some of the audio and coloring to get an "R" rating, so there's something that's different.

    I was just wondering the other day why I didn't already have this, and I thought I vaguely remembered that there would be an uncut version one day. Saw the trailer for the second one today, and it looks to be every bit as intense as the first.

    If 8 seconds isn't worth a double dip I don't know what is. [​IMG]

    I'm going to wait for the reviews. I don't remember hearing any reports of ratings troubles with this, so I'm not sure if an uncut version is neccesary. Have to admit, I am curious to see the corrected color timing on this.

    Since Lions GAte is putting this out, maybe we can get an uncut "House Of A 1000 Corpses".

    Eight whole seconds of additional footage?

    Hold me back! Hold me back!

    Obviously, you guys aren't horror movie fans. 8 seconds is alot to us (sad as that sounds[​IMG]

    And you could argue that since the filmmakers intended that footage to be in the movie, that's the version that should be available. But I can see why 8 seconds doesn't exactly make you jump up and pre-order it.

    Yeah, 8 seconds can mean quite a bit in the horror genre. My "holy grail" of uncut horror films is Friday the 13th Part 7, and I bet the missing footage (mostly gore) there doesn't add up to a whole lot, but I'd sure like to see it.

    I'm planning to watch this thru later tonight. However, last night I did take a look to compare it with the original R-rated disc. The transfer has indeed been tweaked, and its noticable very quickly. When the two men wake up in the bathroom, the new transfer has stronger blacks, and is darker than the original disc. The effect is that the bathroom looks more dank and depressing than before! I also skipped to one of Danny Glover's investigation scenes, with the green tint, and it looked tweaked, but I didn't spend too much time on it.

    The DVD Talk review mentioned that the film had received a new transfer apart from the unrated additions. From my brief look, that certainly looks to be true.

    Yeah, I can't remember the last disc so much but in this transfer there are white specks that appear all over the place. And 8 sec. or not I couldn't tell a difference from the last disc (but it has been a while since I've seen it).

    As per [email protected]:
    R1 "Uncut Edition" includes a newly re-mastered transfer with new extras and commentaries, Do note that it has a shorter time then the theatrical cut.
